Heritage Week 

For Heritage Week we are delighted to be open every day.

The Tower has five levels - the staircase has handrails on both sides to help you climb. You do not need to climb all the way up if you prefer not to! The reward on a nice day will be to see the parapet and the amazing coastline of South Wexford. We will tell you about our work renovating Sigginstown from a ruin and also share the history of the Siggins, Jacobs and Wilson families who altered the buildings in their time.

Cost is €8 adults, €6 children, students, seniors, and. groups of 6 or more together:

If you are interested in additional tours for groups on special dates or times, please email or message us to inquire.
Cash at door or tickets may be purchased by credit card on Eventbrite:

Create and Rehearse a Mumming Play

Saturday 20 August 

Time Warp! We created and rehearsed a short mumming play as it might have been in 1510 at the castle. We wear masks, made rough costumes, and create a script from existing later versions. 

The event is a lot of fun for adults and children alike! Participants will get a free castle tour on Saturday or Sunday, or receive a voucher for a future tour date

Mumming plays were common in the middle ages across Europe, and many scripts with the same characters and themes exist. Here is a similar Wexford 1823 version (
